I think you need to lay off the crack pipe.
I am a little distrustful of Creative’s own server after how they handled
their LAST OpenAL tree and the emu10k1 driver (which used to be in CVS
The version hosted at opensource.creative.com is ANCIENT and not updated.
They were updating Loki CVS directly. I suggest you get in contact with
Garin and anyone else that you probably will need to (I also suggest you
contact Chris Parnell who did the 4 speaker-supporting version of OpenAL
for the emu10k1’s) and work out a real hosting arrangement.
Creative has just moved AL hosting to their opensource server. This only
happened in the past couple of days.
It had been there previously - it just was not updated. At all.
Is the Creative tree suddenly being actually maintained? Remember that
the emu10k1 project recently stopped using opensource.creative.com because
of many problems like … nobody outside of Creative could access it, at
all. Ahh, gotta love firewall rules.
Joe Valenzuela has write access to the opensource.creative.com CVS, and
he’s outside the Creative firewall. Do a “cvs log linux/src/al_main.h” on
the Creative tree:
The reason emu10k1 is no longer hosted by Creative was because their
server was cracked. Creative took a couple weeks getting the thing back
online. They also have not been real helpful.
I don’t expect much better care of the OpenAL tree given the OpenAL tree
they let languish in CVS for about a year without one single update - the
updates were happening to the Loki CVS. (which was amusing given other
factors, but I digress.
It’s arguable they are the perfect people to host it. I’d argue that they
are the least appropriate though.On Sat, Mar 30, 2002 at 07:45:27AM -0500, Ryan C. Gordon wrote:

Now I can finally explain to everyone why I do this. I just got $7 worth
of free stuff for working on Debian !
